    Hello - I'm Gail.

    I personally am a nutritionist, homeopath, and herbalist, and am currently seeking help from Friday, February 15 through Thursday, February 28.

    I have a small property in the middle of Topanga with tenants already living on it, with a serene vibe.

    We are surrounded by coyotes, raccoons, mountain lions, bobcats, birds, frogs, all kinds of wonderful wild life. Appreciating that is of upmost important. It's not a party property, but we have it goin' on. ;)

    There are two dogs on the property, so being an animal lover is a must.

    Most important is that anybody visiting is respectful of nature, respectful of leaving a smaller footprint, respectful of an eco-conscience lifestyle, as much as we can do.

    Tidiness is a must.

    Peaceful paradise in the mountains with close proximity to the City of Angels, Topanga is a very unique place with wonderful energy and lots of beautiful souls living here. You will live with the locals, have plenty of time to meditate, do yoga, go on hikes or chill on the beach. There's plenty of organic coffee shops and markets in the town, and the community is something you won't find anywhere else. There are loads of artists living in the area, and events, festivals and shows, so you will never be bored. It will definitely be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you allow it to be <3.

    *️️️️️NOTE: Having a car while visiting Topanga makes exploring LA much easier, although there are options through the Topanga Beach Bus, and Lyft (Uber doesn't like to come up to Topanga). See "Transportation" below.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    For $1 per ride, you can take the "Topanga Beach Bus" that stops in various locations in Topanga, and travels as far as Santa Monica or the San Fernando Valley (the opposite direction). Once you reach Santa Monica or "the valley", you would transfer to other buses to go out to other neighborhoods. Driving a car is easier, but you can hop on a metro subway in Santa Monica and LA, and in the valley as well. Also, Lyft and Uber (driving services you access via their cell phone app) can get you around.

    LOTS of hiking and biking trails, and you are living in and always surrounded by the stunning nature of the beautiful, coastal Santa Monica mountains.

    Offerings in town:
    Topanga offers yoga classes of all varieties, as well as retreats, meditation groups, and spiritual gatherings. Also live music, restaurants, coffee shops, retail shops, small grocery stores, and a world-class public library.

    Offerings in the city of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley:
    The city of Los Angeles, and also the San Fernando Valley, have SO much to offer in the way of music, art, film/media, Hollywood, cuisine, culture, sports, activism, technology, beaches and mountains, etc., it's hard to know what to do first. You'll NEVER run out of options.
